captainruss Posted March 14, 2016 Share Posted March 14, 2016 I have used Paint.NET extensively in making instrument graphics for flight simulators. I am brand new to the forum though. I need to place objects by coordinates in the Lua code I write to create these instruments. I need the left. top. width. height valuse to include in functions. Now I copy these values when a rect is selected with the selection tool. The are at the bottom of the window where it says "selection Top Left: <left> <top> and Bounding rectangle size; <width> X <height> Ironically the text says Top Left but the values are reversed but are exactly in the order I need, (see attached pic) I end up writing these values in a piece of paper and later typing then into my scripts. WOULD IT BE POSSIBLE... either via Plug-In that might already exist, a feature I don't know about, or with the addition of a feature TO have some button or contextual menu to copy these four coordinates , comma delimited, into the clipboard. I right click and select a rect area and a contextual menu pops up with "copy coords". Selecting would copy the string " left , top, width, height " (without the quotes of course) into the clipboard so I could paste them. Anyone know if this exists, is possible, or how to get such a feature added to paint,NET? ANyone want to write such a simple plugin if that is possible? Any help greatly appreciated. ps. see our work at www.siminnovations.com Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
